Commission piece. Made from a 1940's copy of Virginia Woolfe's "Mrs. Dalloway". Clarissa Dalloway is shown on her way home from purchasing flowers for her dinner party. Throughout the day she thinks about the two loves of her life, (three if you count Sally, but she's not pictures here) Peter and Richard. Peter, on the left has his bow tie and glasses, fresh from his travels in India. Richard, far right, is Clarissa's husband, hansom and secure. In the middle is Septimus, Clarissa's carbon copy in the novel. Septimus handles his problem irrationally, eventually driving himself insane while Clarissa does her best to think about things with a cool head.
As a book collector, it breaks my heart to see old books being torn apart. That said, you are very talented and I enjoy looking at your work.
Thank you. All of the books that I use were being disposed of by their owners. Whether I got them at thrift stores, yard sales or they were simply given to me, they were all heading for the trash can. A few I've even dug out of trash cans I hope you can see it as just re-purposing something instead of tearing them apart.
